Lucifer returns May 1st, and it looks like the Devil is bringing Daddy along with him for the last half of Season Two. Fans of Psych and Galavant will no doubt rejoice to learn that, officially, Timothy Omundson is God.
With Chloe (Lauren German) slowly dying in a hospital bed, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) organizes the troops for a desperate plan. Choosing to kill himself, temporarily, Lucifer returns to Hell in search of the college professor (Tim DeKay) who alone knows the formula to the designer poison antidote. With many of Lucifer’s plans, things don’t got quite a smoothly as he hoped. The show certainly pulls out all the stops to deliver a strong mid-season finale.
Now that Chloe (Lauren German) appears to be all-in and ready to start a relationship, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) is confounded the detective’s change of heart and begins to pull back leading to some awkward moments between the pair. With things not progressing quickly enough, Mum (Tricia Helfer) decides to break the news to her son about the detective’s divine birth. It’s an odd choice, as Lucifer and Chloe seem to be back on track until the intervention with Mum and a conflicted Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt). Now the question becomes where do the potential lovebirds go from here? Of course, they do have a far more pressing problem to deal with first.
After Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Detective Decker‘s (Lauren German) first attempt to share a moment is interrupted by one of the Devil’s fuckbuddies, a stewardess (Jennifer Cheon) who later turns up dead, Chloe begins to quickly reconsider falling for Lucifer. When not one but two murders turn out to be both former lovers, and leads to the discovery of Lucifer’s extremely stalkerish #1 fan (Diana Bang), things get even icy between the pair which culminates in a police interrogation of all of Lucifer’s recent affairs. The show brilliantly turns the scene from he litany of lovely ladies praising Lucifer’s skill in the sack (as Lucifer proudly prances about) to cutting out his legs from underneath him when admitting their was no emotional connection at all.
I loved this episode. The trial of the man who murdered Chloe‘s (Lauren German) father begins, and when the star witness turns up dead Lucifer (Tom Ellis) takes the stand. Although hugely entertaining, his testimony does open a hole in the prosecution’s case. Things are complicated by 1) The fallout from Lucifer standing up Chloe on their date, 2) Lucifer’s Mum (Tricia Helfer) defending the man who killed Chloe’s father, and 3) Detective Douche (Kevin Alejandro) sleeping with Lucifer’s mother and unintentionally providing ammunition for the defense. In the end Chloe must choose to sacrifice Lucifer to get justice or stand-up for her partner and allow the man responsible for her father’s death to go free.
